ABOUT RAJ

About Raj Gill

My name is Raj Gill, and I am the candidate for Hammersmith and Chiswick. My background speaks for itself — I have been a tireless defender of working class people my entire life. I have fought for a long time and spoke out for the people of Palestine. I demand a ceasefire.

I have dedicated over 50 years of my life as a Trade Unionist, and have been all across The South of our country, fighting for regular working class people. For all kinds of issues; pay, housing, equality, and everything in-between.

A vote for me is a vote for a man with a strong, solid background in politics.

REflections on A living legend

Raj’s lifetime of service to our working class

If you were to read through a history book of working class history — the struggles, the strikes, the issues, you’d hear a lot about the 70s and beyond. There’d be a lot of talk about the bitter and difficult struggles faced back then and since, by working people of all backgrounds trying to engage in transforming our society for the better.

The joyous victories, the sad losses, and the continuous attacks and discriminations that were suffered in the midst of a bitter class war between Thatcher’s government and the working people of this country. These were not just limited to a person’s ethnic background, they were levelled directly at the ability of the common working person to hold their parliament to the democracy it promised.

Their livelihoods, their homes, their communities — all decimated in a brutal and unflinching plunge to the right that we have yet to recover from.

American working class historian Howard Zinn once remarked: “What matters is the countless small deeds of unknown people who lay the basis for the significant events that enter into history.” It is clear that those among those deeds, among the people who committed them — Raj has been a central figure.

Whether it was strikes in auto plants in the 1970s, sitting on boards in trade unions to fight for equal rights for people of all backgrounds, Raj has been there fighting for us. Trade Union work does not come easy — it is a difficult, sometimes bittersweet struggle that fills one’s life with joy in one moment, and heartbreak the next. To get back up each time after defeat is not easy, but we face no other option. Raj — faced no other option but to fight for us.

To have endured this struggle for 50 years, to retire, and then to return right back to the front lines of politics is no mean feat. Raj is a person not to be taken lightly.

Why vote for Workers Party?

Why vote WPB in Hammersmith and Chiswick?

“If there ever were a beating heart in politics, it would be Raj Gill.

I have been involved in trade unions for but a short time in my life, but Raj has been involved in trade unions and working class politics all his life. He has been a dedicated, courageous and determined figure who has played a part in the politics of this country — the fights for the working class — that have defined our era.

If you open a book on the strikes of the past, and read of the courage and determination strikers had against a Thatcherite government, chances are that Raj has been involved in that movement. It has been an absolute honour to be involved with Raj’s campaign.

He is a good man, worthy of much respect, and is a living legend in his own right.

Solidarity, Raj! Onward!”

WHY VOTE FOR OUR PARTY?

Our Key Policies

Decent, Affordable Social Housing

Social Housing was something this country pioneered back in the day. We want to return to this, but with a modern twist, to provide affordable, cost-effective housing produced for people to live in, but using automation to meet the high demand for housing due to a failed free-market system.

Nationalise the NHS

The NHS has been broken into a million pieces — all of them private. It’s time to return the NHS back into public hands, do away with all of the expensive and convoluted market systems within it, and turn it back into a system which is responsive to the people, and for which, parliament is responsible. No more highly-expensive and useless PFI contracts.

Community-led Redevelopment

We will deliver mass-produced housing which will be affordable, and will provide families with homes of good quality. This will be done not by wasteful investment projects or private firms, but with automation and community-led building plans so that what gets developed in a community is what the community want, not what multi-national corporations want.

Bring in Children’s Online Wellbeing Act

We want to protect our children from addictive social media that leads to mental health, lack of confidence and self-harm issues. We want to limit enhanced content and all advertising to under-18s. That means taking on big Social Media companies in the Parliament to protect our future.

None of the mainstream parties would dare take on big corporate social media companies. This reason alone should be enough for you to vote for an independent party this election.

Stop the Genocide in Gaza

We are not afraid to call it what it is – Genocide! Most people agree with us, but the mainstream parties are simply ignoring the people. Make your vote Count! We do, by also supporting students!

Starmer’s Labour stands for relative reticence to criticise Israel. He said they have the right to cut off all water, food and electricity. He has never condemned any of the bombing of refugee camps killing hundreds at a time. That is unforgivable.

Reduce Bills – Nationalise the Utilities

Water and the Rail sectors are the prime examples of disastrous privatisation by Labour and the Tories. We stand for nationalising the utilities.

Labour – a supposedly left-wing party, can’t even name 3 industries they would nationalise.
